New Fancy Pattern: Four Winds Quilt!

There is a new quilt pattern in town! The Four Winds quilt by Amber Corcoran is Fancy Tiger's newest pattern and our very first quilt pattern.

The construction of this quilt is quick, due to large scale patchwork and an efficient method of making its flying geese blocks. It is simple enough for new quilters and is a great introduction to matching your points, as the large blocks are pretty forgiving.

queen/king size quilt
We love this modern take on the classic flying geese quilt. The sample quilt uses 12 fat quarters from the Liberty Lifestyle Bloomsbury Gardens quilting cotton that pop off a background of Kona cotton Snow.

The pattern would look fantastic in the new Lotta Jansdotter collection (that we just got in!), or Carolyn Friedlander's Botanics fabrics.

twin size

Three quilt sizes--throw, twin and queen/king--are included in the pattern. The instructions thoroughly detail the construction of the quilt top, the quilt back and how to make a "front-to-back" binding, a method of binding popular in the 1930's

You can get the Four Winds Quilt pattern now in our Etsy shop and print copies will be available here in the shop next week.

Happy quilting and stay cozy!


  1. I love it!!!
    I've been dreaming about an all-chambray quilt for a while, I think this could look really good with chambray for the triangles. I might need to give that a try.

  2. Oh my goodness, Sara, that would be so beautiful! I would love to see it if you do it! --amber

  3. I went to your Etsy shop to purchase the instant download and it is sold. :( Can you let me know when this glitch is fixed? I am dreaming of giant geese. Thank you!

  4. Darcy - it's back in stock now, thanks for letting us know!

  5. Hi there, I am a new quilter who purchased your quilting pattern. I am really excited about it, but I am having a hard time figuring out just how I should cut the squares. When I look at the instructions for the throw, I take the diagram in part 1 to mean that I cut 4 blocks x 16.75" square "solid" fabric, 12 blocks of 8 7/8" square "patterned" and the other 12 smaller blocks are solid....correct? I keep thinking I understand it but then when I read the piecing instructions I get really confused again. Any help would be appreciated.

  6. Is unavailable on Etsy right now.

  7. I want to buy it! Please see if you can get the glitch fixed again. Thx.

  8. I made one but the geese are several inches smaller than yours. Can I ask you the width of your geese?
